at a letter sense out today by committee of science, space and technology, they are talking about a man in department of energy, running the loan gar abty program who was using private e-mail accounts and office of science and technology, technology officer there conducting business with a private e-mail account, how widespread do you believe this is? >> you have to say how many places is this the being used. and there is no doubt that people are trying to use it to avoid compliance with the freedom of information act. that is absolutely unacceptable. we have to find out how widespreaddis it. how many accounts are being used. different accounts traps a number -- perhaps a number of accounts by the same person, we have to assure this is not being used to avoid compliance with the law, transparency is for important not only to us but to american citizens this is not done, that is something we're not going to let go of until we get to the bottom of it. tom. i hope not, people said why are people not held accountable for their actions? are -- forgive me, i do not know the procedure or theel
, even in the face of all these technology companies that are coming here and helping us uplift our economy, even within that success, you hear me talking about the people who aren't getting those jobs, the people who are making decisions everyday in our streets, in our community, and i will not be mincing words -- it is in the bay view. in in the visitation valley. it is in the mission where their dispute resolution is at the end of a gun and this is the way they're talking. this is the way they're dealing with each other and then with anybody who attempts to interfere with that. you have heard me say even with the success of all of our departments and everything that they're doing i can't give a job to a dead youth no matter what we do, and so i can have the best training programs. i can have a high number of jobs available. eric mcdonald and i can create 10,000 jobs in the summer, but if our youth are resolving their differences with the point of a gun or the end of a knife those jobs are never going to be available to them. how do we interrupt that violence? i cannot put i
. and that's kind of unusual especially today when it's easy to do otherwise through technolo technologically means. he was always up front. some people accused him of being extremely flamboyant. unnecessarily flamboyant. but his personality was such that he couldn't possibly do it any other way. in vietnam, he did it exactly the same way as he did it every other time. sometimes recklessly as a matter of fact, he was occasionally accused of being reckless and all of us have made mistakes in combat and he made his share, too, but he had people working for him, who loved working for him. even though he -- he occasionally -- he occasionally dealt with them in an extremely harsh way. but they would follow them. >> colonel jack jacobs, thank you for taking some time for us today, sir. >> my great pleasure. >>> turning now to what may be the phrase of the year, the fiscal cliff, and with the calendar as the enemy the two sides desperate to hammer out a deal. this afternoon the president will sit down with congressional leaders at the white house. the hope is that both sides can agree to a compromis
foundation. supporting science, technology, and improved economic performance and financial literacy in the 21st century. >> and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... >> this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> warner: five days and counting with plenty of tit-for- tat charges, but no agreement in sight. that, in short, summed up the state of affairs in washington today as the fiscal cliff deadline loomed, january first. it would mean more than $600 billion in across-the-board tax increases and automatic spending cuts. >> come the first of this year, americans will have less income than they have today. if we go over the cliff, and it looks like that's where we're headed. >> warner: this morning, the senate's democratic majority leader, harry reid, was blunt about chances for a deal. and he blamed house speaker john boehner. just before christmas, boehner floated his so-called "plan b"-- letting taxes rise on millionaires. but faced with opp
before congress on the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. >>> turning to technology, reviewers say the best part of microsoft's latest operating system is the touch screen. the problem is that one research group says hardly anyone is actually buying a touch screen computer. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. people are not taking advantage of this technology. why not? >> cnn money's david goldman y says this is like e throwing out your tv remote and getting up to press the buttons on the tv every time you want to change the channel. but there are a few good reasons people aren't using this technology. for one, market research company says only 5% of windows laptops sold through december 15th had touch screens in the first place. that's an extremely low number. especially since that's the whole point of this new operating system. so the big problem here is there just aren't that many touch screen laptops out there. and the ones out there are expensive. they usually go for a couple hundred bucks. now on top of all that, there seems to be a gap between microsoft's a
invent things we didn't buy, faster than any technology. number nine, the u.s. stock market despite all the worries about the fiscal cliff, the stock market had a great year. >> number eight. facebook's i pshlpo. investor diagnosis not. trading glitches and questions about the company's ability to make money on mobile users unload the stock which has yet to climb back to the ipo price. >> number seven, mother meyer. the new ceo of yahoo who announced she would take a two-week maternity leave. 37 years old and it looks like a mother's touch is what yao ya hoo needed. >> an intense drought that scorched the corn and soy crop sending prices sky high. who can forget super storm sandy. neighborhoods along the northeast swept away millions without power and damages as high as $50 billion brings in lots of questions about u.s. infrastructure and whether we should spend money to fix it. >> number five, china. for sure by 2030. >> china. >> china getting more than a few mentions during the presidential campaign probably because it's clear they are both a competitor and a partner. >> number four,
of a pilot aligned with the core curriculum standards and i work for a technology company and we're not at that level. preschool with core curriculum that makes for successful individuals. underserved kids particularly to do well in math in school. so there is a big difference between daycare and preschool and that is what we have a lack of is preschool. there are day-care centers. no one is arguing about the lack of and i think our own research found there is a daycare, but daycare didn't do is anything, particularly for kids of color. head start has been shown to be very ineffective, not to disrespectful. they provide a place for working families to place their children, but do not provide the generatation of a workforce of the future. i have to say that when we look at our priority principles and the general plan about serving families and neighbors who are serving youth and child-care, this is one of those issues that is equally as important. so i understand the concerns about noise. and it's actually interesting that we hear this a lot on people complaining about the loss
technology much and that is a great message for christmas day . >> on the only for catholics or christians and people who believe that there is a higher power and there is a super gnarl being who has plan and mission for our lives and the pope is saying in this modern age . we don'tine have time for god which is amazing. that doesn't make sense. if god is al-powerful and loving . we are for him . it is time like christmas. we are able to sit back and reflect a bit especially after the gifts are wrapped and preparations are done for us . what is my life all about? and jesus said your life is about living and dying and getting ready for life eterm . he has come and in the form of a baby and christmas doesn't make sense unless it is it linked to his life and passion and death and resurrection and redemption. that's what christmas is all about. go ahead, rick. >> every year, our world changes so much especially in the last month with the massacres that we saw. >> that's right. >> but your message on christmas does it change or is it that same message. >> it is the same but we live it in a way
that with any kind of motion picture technology available, it's not a new thing. in fact there was a film that starred grover cleveland in 18 -- whenever that would have been an mckinley inauguration is on film. people have wanted to apply film to the presidency forever but we just reached a point in time in 2008 when technology was enough that one person rather than i would say from the 60's onward about three people could actually do this work. more importantly than that i think it's a personality meeting technology moment. for instance, in the 1960 election and talks about the television election of jfk and how telegenic he was and it's all true but it's not to say that television hadn't than any major important medium and had been used by several presidents before him but he have this unique temperament and a look that really spoke well to television. you have a similar thing with the internet and barack obama and certainly other people have tried to what extent they could have been i think there is a reason why say will.i.am didn't make good music video about howard dean. it wouldn't

. they are now offering the 3d mammogram. it is the first va to offer this technology. it allows doctors to examine breast tissue one layer at a time, rendering deeper and more accurate readings. the fda has sent a warning letter to more than 350 doctors about a bad batch of zero talks -- of botox. the fda says it cannot be sure it is safe and effective. it could also be counterfeit. it was not manufactured in the proper way. operators of more than 4000 websites were ordered to stop selling unapproved drugs to u.s. customers. a majority of those websites were operated by canada drugs. doctors should only get botox from licensed u.s. pharmacies. now to the topic of obesity. it is the time we all seem to gain a little bit more is the holidays at. it can increase your risk for cancer. it would seem that eating less would help, but it is more complicated than that. even if we were to be the same amount of calories, there is still inconclusive evidence that it would reduce cancer risk. so, what can we do? >> it is an interesting question. is cancer really caused by adult weight gain, but the

people but also with all the new technology we could be losing a lot so historians and another 100 years are going to have a rough time. today we seem to be extra cognizant of the impact of the damning letter. i think historically to some extent also, one thing george washington did later in life as he tried to collect, and revise or added some of his earlier letters. george is trying to collect letters to rewrite them to -- jefferson was sometimes right with an i.t. history and perhaps put himself in a favorable light before the event happens of history would review benezet wow jefferson was on the right side of history. when you read washington and jefferson and others ,-com,-com ma it's tough to do. you have to understand, was this really what they meant or were they just lowing small? the same way when you go back to class reunion and if you meet someone and send them in a -- e-mail, you don't tell them they looked horrible look horrible and they look 30 years older than you, do you? congratulations on the new job so we don't know about this, that in the other things i think it's g
of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in europe. >> right. >> incredible. and here's what he says. a very remarkable work is the mechanic and critique of the grange. he is allowed to be the greatest mathematician now living, and his personal worth is equal to his science. the object of his work is to reduce all the principles of mechanics to a single equi-in rum and blah, blah, blah. and then he goes on to apologize for not being able to read it. this would require a calculus degree. >> right. >> and i was a math major, and i had two years of physics. we don't get to la garage in mechanics until the junior or senior year. so now 200 years later, i'm still not up to he grange mechanics, and there is thomas jefferson discoursing on it and understood it. >> right. >> i mean, it's an incredible example of his renaissance qualities. >> right. >> finally, he ended the letter -- >> well, sir, do you have a question?

recently in getting the technology up to snuff, jaime. jaime: general, if senator kerry is confirmed as the secretary of state what kind of impact do you think he can have on both syria and north korea and the threat they pose to us? >> very limited. both these countries are on automatic, sadly. the biggest threat to me is north korea. i mean, this is a threat not to the region, but it's a threat to the united states. remember mr. kim said that he was hoping to get the throw weight of this missile up over 2,000 pounds. if you miniature rise a nuclear weapon to fit on top of a icbm it will weigh 2,000 pounds. this is a threat to guam, hawaii and alaskan it's something that we in the united states need to take very, very seriously. jaime: i hear the concern in your voice. i want to ask you one other thing about africa and the al-qaida threat that exists in many nations in that part of the world and the fact that the pentagon is now taking a closer look at it, possibly even sending a brigade there to get their troops up to snuff, although that could be a real challenge. >> yeah, well th
